Duus Hus Cultural Center

A complex of historic buildings known as Duus Hus contain the Reykjanes Heritage Museum, the Reykjanes Art Gallery, and the Reykjanes Maritime Museum which is home to a collection of 100 miniature model boats built by retired local skipper Grimur Karlsson.

Duus Museum is the Art and Cultural Center of Reykjanesbær. It houses the exhibition halls for the local museums, concert halls and halls for mixed cultural activities.  The exhibitions cover fine art, history and nature so there is a lot to see. The exhibit is a favorite of locals and visitors alike as it depicts the history of the Icelandic fishing industry through the model boats beginning with classic wooden schooners used in the mid-19th century to the steam and diesel trawlers of modern times.

Café Duus offers refreshments. Tourist information and a booking center is also located in Duus Museum. 

Duus Museum is located near the marina in overlooking the Keflavík bay. On the cliffs surrounding the Duus marina is an interesting foot path where one might sometimes catch a glimpse of whales swimming in the sea.
